Presentation: “Navigating Complex Topics in Health Research: The Central Role of Participants and Their Families.” 

Speaker: Crystal M. Glover, Ph.D.  

Presentation Topic: This presentation will highlight the general state of health research, the critical need for diverse participation among persons across the age spectrum, the vital role of caregivers and families, and strategies for inclusion.

Brief Biography: Dr. Crystal M. Glover is an applied social psychologist, mixed methodologist, and health equity in aging researcher at the Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center and an Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences (and) Neurological Sciences in Rush Medical College. She also leads the Outreach, Recruitment, and Engagement Core at the Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center.

Dr. Glover’s areas of interest include health equity and health disparities; structural and psychosocial determinants of health including socioeconomic status and psychological wellbeing; intersectionality as a conceptual framework and methodology; and social cognitive processes such as attitudes, beliefs, and perceptions. She focuses her research and related efforts on understanding and facilitating cognitive and healthy aging across all demographic groups but with a special concentration on collaborating with and inclusion of members of African American/Black and Hispanic/Latino communities that have been inequitably included and traditionally understudied in aging research.

She has widely published her peer-reviewed work in several high-impact scientific journals, including Alzheimer’s & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer’s Association, CHEST, and Human Genetics. She continues to present her research at international and national scientific meetings, and belongs to several professional groups, including The Alzheimer’s Association International Society To Advance Alzheimer’s Research and Treatment (ISTAART) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention BOLD Public Health Center of Excellence on Dementia Risk Reduction. Overall, Dr. Glover dedicates her work to eradicating health disparities and creating health equity - globally, nationally, and locally.
